Warm thanks to Diana W!
Why did Dan Dugan have to write the following explanation for the, um, mistatements in the grant application?
Because of Diana W., of course. Her over-the-top, totally ridiculous response to my mild, light-hearted hint that PLANS just might have lied in a grant application, forced me to actually publish quotes from that grant application. I wouldn't have cared if she had ignored my remark. Nobody else would have noticed if she had ignored my remark. Within days, everyone would have forgotten that anyone had said anything at all about PLANS lying on a grant application. But Diana, in her attempt to defend PLANS from attack, opened them up to public humiliation and made it necessary for Dan to go out and try to explain the unexplainable and justify the unjustifiable. I just hope Dan appreciates her efforts to protect him.
While I'm at it, I'd like to acknowledge a couple of other achievements from Diana.
One of my favorites is her role in getting Pete kicked off of Mothering. I won't go into details, but she probably knows what I'm talking about and I'm sure that Pete has figured it out.
Her outstanding ability to present the Waldorf Critics as nutcases and fruits has been very useful over the years and is highly valued by everyone who tries to protect Waldorf education from defamation.
So, I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my warm appreciation of Diana. My favorite Critic and a truly thoughtful and courteous human being. One who can be depended upon to open her mouth and insert not only her foot, but her leg, and beyond.

Diana had a role in getting me kicked off Mothering? I'd love to hear about this.

Surely you haven't forgotten the episode. Maybe this will help you remember?
Diana's bumbling exposed the both of you operating as Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum Super Spies. Soon after, you indicated that Mothering caught you lurking behind the draperies and tossed you back out.

You've got to be kidding Linda. First Deborah makes the statement that Diana somehow contributed to getting me banned from MDC (she absolutely did not - i.e. Deborah lied again) and now you think THIS addresses the statement adequately? Here's another case of throwing crap against the wall and hoping it sticks. What an incredible waste of my time it is to think you could actually discuss these things honestly.
Do you really think, after you and Deborah got me kicked off of MDC the first time, that I was stupid enough to go into MDC as a "spy" under the "secret" name PK1? I'll answer that for you - NO you don't. You must think, however, that readers who are stupid enough to believe this blog must also be gullible enough to believe your rebuttal.
The truth is, you, like all Waldorf representatives, couldn't stand an honest debate about Waldorf on a public forum and that's why YOU and Deborah most certainly complained until I was removed from MDC. The process took months. You brought in Sune to aggrivate the situation - remember? You have nothing of substance in your claims, once again, and this has become your trademark.

Pete, Pete, Pete, Pete......Pete
Slow down. This is very simple. You know that saying, "Loose Lips Sink Ships?" When you play spy games (as you two were doing) this is probably good advice as well. Be that as it may, Diana tangled the both of you up with her loose talk. And your ship went down.
How do I know this? Because I watched it unfold on the Waldorf Critics List. After realizing the cat was out of the bag, you and she both told everybody what you were up to...and also posted instructions to invite others to become spies too. You then reported to the list that you had been *caught* disguised as PK1 and booted out!
Now you're pretending this PK1 is *my* stupid theory? This is exactly the account YOU gave there, and I linked to it above.
I don't know if you are still playing spy games, but it's obvious you are still very caught up playing the Blame Game. Grow up, Pete. I had nothing to do with it. Put away all the paranoid conspiracy theories. Apply the principle of Occam's Razor... and a much simpler theory which could explain what happened to you will become evident.
I suggest one of the first things to consider was how you were constantly behaving and how you were forever making excuses for yourself by blaming your own actions on others. Just like now. And to consider how that normally plays out among those who, like you, are forever doing this.
And now I'm finished with this. Both of us are probably quite tired of arguing with one another. I know I've had enough.
